47. OPEN MIC: RAVEN ROBERTS

Turmeric & Tequila’s Misson: To inspire positive, radical, social evolution. 

I created this podcast quite simply to provide a platform for anyone that needs a space to share their voice. There are far too many people unheard. Given the current situation in America and now around the world, it was a no brainer to open up the mic to people of color. I am happy to keep the mic open with a never ending “T&T Open Mic Series”. The T&T Open Mic Series is literally that, an open mic. I am happy to participate in the conversation with you OR happy to listen and learn. It’s for you. No red tape, except please no hate:) If you have a message to share, please reach out to me. I will aim to get these conversations posted as fast as I can and continue to do so in the future alongside the other “regular scheduled casts”. 

I welcome Raven Roberts back to T&T on this cast, she graciously joins us while at her home in NYC. Raven is a powerhouse in her own right and I am so thankful she came on to share her views on what is going on in the world right now. She is no stranger to activism, colorism, and the need for a new deeper racial consciousness and conversation across the board. We talk about it all… systemic racism, what to do as a white person, as a black person, racism in fashion… we even cover how to address branding in the current climate?! I won’t say too much more, please listen to the end where she nails it with one quote. If you are looking for a way to help and contribute to positive change, please check out Raven’s social channels. She has a plethora of actionable items that you can do right now and continue to do, so we see change and evolution continuously happening. 

Appreciate you Raven, blessed to call you a friend!! XO
